Former Giants CB Terrell Thomas Cut by Seahawks

Original New York Giants draft pick Terrell Thomas fell victim to roster shave downs on Sunday evening. Less than a month after joining his new team on July 28th, the veteran corner was waived by defensive back-heavy Seattle on its quest to 75 players.

Thomas is entering his age 29 season with multiple ACL tears on his injury chart, so it’s standard practice that teams were extremely leery of throwing dollars his way during free agency. He stayed healthy with the Giants throughout 2013, but Thomas’ movement (or lack thereof) was exposed in coverage situations — both his burst and change of direction have seen better days…

On the other hand, however, Thomas still offers boatloads of experience, football intelligence and a secure tackling presence. There must be another franchise who’s willing to overlook his athletic shortcomings for some short-term stability.

Hey, how about a return to the Big Apple with the J-E-T-S? Already short at CB, the Jets suspended an AWOL’ing Dimitri Patterson indefinitely earlier this afternoon.

Thomas is two years the junior of Patterson, even though his body more closely resembles that of a 39-year old. Other potential landing spots for Thomas are spearheaded by Detroit and Oakland. What say you, Giants Nation — will #24 Terrell Thomas find professional work in 2014?
